WHAT IS CLASSICAL EDUCATION?
Classical education is an education primarily concerned with the cultivation of the whole child; mind, body, and spirit or character. It is the pursuit of those things that are true, good, and beautiful. A classical education at Liberty Academy first and foremost focuses on guiding the hearts of children toward virtuous character.
In practice it is a "back to basics" education focused on reading, writing, arithmetic, and an examination of the greatest books. It is an education rooted in the teachings of Greece and Rome, shaped through the Western tradition, which has produced the greatest thinkers the world has ever known.
